Boulders blocked our access to the construction site and the Department of Land and Natural Resources deemed it unsafe for us to proceed. For the safety of our team, we made the decision to bring them off the mountain and we are planning to resume when the issue is resolved.</p> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-nodereference"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/statement-mauna-kea-hawaii-governors-office-june-24-2015">Statement on Mauna Kea from Hawaii Governor&#039;s Office, June 24, 2015</a> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.tmt.org/news-center/tmt-cuts-short-first-day-construction-restart-safety-reasons" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Press Release Thu, 25 Jun 2015 04:16:18 +0000 gordon 1121 at http://www.tmt.org TMT Partners Agree to Restart Construction of Telescope Project http://www.tmt.org/news-center/tmt-partners-agree-restart-construction-telescope-project <p>Statement from Henry Yang, Chair of the TMT International Observatory Board:</p> <p>&ldquo;After more than two months of consultation, education, and dialogue with many stakeholders, we humbly announce that the TMT International Observatory Board has decided to move ahead to restart the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope on the morning of Wednesday, June 24.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tmt.org/news-center/tmt-partners-agree-restart-construction-telescope-project" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Press Release Sun, 21 Jun 2015 04:30:40 +0000 gordon 1096 at http://www.tmt.org
